Carrickmore Fly-in Weekend 2014

Post by nispot »

Carrickmore Flying Club near Omagh in N. Ireland are hoping to run a fly-in event on Saturday 10th - Sunday 11th May 2014.

Should the weather that weekend be unsuitable the event will be put back a fortnight until the weekend of 24th-25th May.

Carrickmore Flying Club is situated near Omagh in N. Ireland.

Airfield details are as follows:

2 NM S of Carrickmore, co-ordinates:
N 54:34.276
W 007:02.654

Freq: 129.825
Elev: 541ft

RW 08/26

Length: 375 x 5 metres

All circuits are performed to the north of the field so it's a left-hand circuit on RW 08 and a right-hand circuit on RW 26.

Pilots familiar with STOL operations welcome.

Landmarks which may be useful to you are a windfarm with 12 turbines to the SW and a second windfarm with 7 turbines which is situated just to the south of the strip in the deadside area. There is also quarry on short finals to RW 26 at around 500 feet.

For those of you who may have further to travel here are some suggestions for local guesthouses, etc in the local area. Camping is also available at the strip for those that like to get close to the elements!
